Been thinking about buying a DW-6600. However, pictures of them show a large red "G" on the face when they are illuminated. <| Do they all show that obnoxious red G when illuminated?

:thanks

DW-6600's with the module 1199 will always have the 'G' in the EL backlight. The DW-6620/40's have a different module but they're hard to find and I'm not certain what's in their backlight.

Cheers, Greg

The DW-6600 in black standard color are not having the G in backlight, only the special color versions in yellow, red or purple. :-!

So look for the cheapest new version, the DW-6600-1XX.

Thanks, d2mac and casiophile! :thanks Need some clarification, though. Just went to the Casio website and it shows a DW6600-C1V in black with the red G. <| As casiophile points out, it does have the 1199 module.

What was Casio thinking???? :-s

Did the 6600's issued to the military have the red G?

Hi,
it all depends on the model number - the DW-6600-1V is the one without the "G" - the DW-6600C has the "G" in the backlight.

Greetings, Sedi:)

The module 1199 is used in any DW-6600. With or without G.
I dont agree with Casiophile, the module no. is not giving a proper decision. :-(

Yes! You're right. I located a pic of a DW-6600-1VZ [1199] that had no 'G' in the backlight. Good call. :-!

What model was the military issue (Navy, I think)? Did it have the red G?

Found a 6600-1V (non-red G) available by a web seller. Is that current production or is it likely to be NOS?

Cheers!

HAHA! i just got my 6600 foxfire yellow last night, and the G in the background is the coolest thing since my hi-top Adidas! :-d

Its classic, its in-your-face, and most importantly, its "G". :-!

To each his own, but i personally think the large G is the coolest background ive seen since the stealth fighter background in a stealthed out G i saw a while back.

Navy SEALs/EOD are issued the model with the red G. Probably just whatever is currently available, but I know the red G's are out there.
